jeez, you guys are behind. Keep up on the animu thread since I don't like cluttering the boards with excess "chinese cartoons." Then again, I'm probably one of the "no-life"'s here :turned:

This is why the series should be taken with a pinch of salt. Now over-rev! is much more realistic in terms of the way the story and everything goes

The live action or 3rd stage movie? Live action was meh by standards when compared to the tv series

you guys are killjoys, who pissed in your coffee chrisfrom1986? you can kiss my ass with that bullshit.

Dont put up memes you cant back, and the simple fact i displayed this in the ENTERTAINMENT area for an anime watch shouldnt mean i dream a drifting an ae86 in koga japan, fucking tard.

EF9- The movie was the first thing i ever saw, a friend introduced it to me, then i caught up with the anime and downloaded ALL the stages, watched em, liked em.

why anyone would think this cartoon teaches people to drive or even give that impression shouldnt be in this thread, fucking stupid...

and the cartoon is japanese by the way...

I have never seen the animated series, is it that good? Never been a fan of animation doing something that was meant to be live acting, kind of like seen a animated war movie, doesn't feel the same.

But if it is that good, and the story is well put together, then I give it a try. I just don't want to feel like I'm watching "Cars" from Pixar.

Where will be a good place to watch it?

You do bring up a very valid point. Before initial d became a name associated with the corolla gts, people over here didn't give two shits about them. Now go to any track and you will see tons of kids doing fail drift attempts in half assed 86's. Good thing over-rev! remained low-key otherwise my beloved aw11 would have gone up in flames of babbies n noobs.

There is an attempt that it tries to imply a storyline. It's a sorta dry cut and high romance that is pretty straightforward. The character development is some, but it shows more in terms of their skill and driver ideology. If you know how to search, there are a few torrents that might still be active. Youtube also has it but I'd go for the sub'd versions. The dub's are horrible and for good reason. The voice acting is a joke. The nostalgic eurobeat is replaced by some shitty noise cut straight from some low budget rapper music video. Basically the dub is like what america did to the civic. Turned it from awesomeness into a failing piece of shit.

Not in PR, we loved old school Toyota's specially RWD. We have been using the 84-87 Corollas for drag racing for years.

Felo Racing-- first 4cyl Toyota in the 10, 9, 8, 7sec. Till this happend to the car

PSI Racing

La Heavy Weight

El Humilde (I believe to be the fastest and quickest AE86 in the world)

LOL at the need for character development for a series as OLD as initial D.

its all about the ae86, this cartoons original run is from the early 90's boricuanology.

The movie is what brought the series to light.

But these guys are right, its really just about a guy who is the son of a small town racer who now runs a tofu shop and his old buddy works at the gas station the protaganist works at.

at first its just about developing his skill, the romance is secondary, always is.

then the car breaks down, and his dad rebuilds it. Then his dad gets him a wrx.

Takumi is strictly a downhill specialist, and he drives with a team of other specialist drifters, its not like theyre all super good drifters in all areas, just a specific one, thats the realism.

otherwise, its just a cartoon that uses old cars we like, and drive.

like the corolla, like the fc and fd, amongst a few others.

chris86 YOU shit in my wheaties pal, i thought that the meme was for me. :p

otherwise it makes sense why you put it up, but to let you guys know? no drifting track has an ae86 ive ever been to with some dummy driving it. Its usually the noobs and weirdos mobbing in the 240's and shit. LOL

I love that toyota's are harder to source parts for otherwise there'd be more fools running them. In addition to this, parts also do cost a higher premium in comparison to honda's I've dealt with. Makes the screening process a bit easier. Sad though cause I've seen plenty of failed takumi 86's going on sale in my area that are half assed or half finished cause "oh I lost the drive" or "oh it got too difficult." excuses excuses.

Funny thing is, ever since i have got my corolla, people always assumed that im an Initial D and drifting fan. Then the look on their face when i tell them i have never seen Initial D(well up until now) and i have no intent of drifting my car. I actually just finished/caught up with Initial D. I have enjoyed it so far, not a great stand out anime for me, but it is still very good.

^Thats how i got mine for a good price. Kid with stars in his eyes bought it but didnt know what he was getting into. Bought a 20+ year old car and didnt know how to replace a throw out bearing lol. Chassis and suspension parts are hard/expensive, the T50 trans is a big hold back, and swapping motors is expensive. Making n/a power with the 4age isnt very expensive if you just put some smarts to it.

to be fair...
first, the ae86 is a decent beginners car if someone is genuinely looking to get into legit drifting (not dipshitting around corners in their neighborhood), so there is some rationale to it being desirable...though 240 would probably be cheaper nowadays

also, the redub of the original seasons is actually quite good, they brought in a lot of VA's that were fans of the show and it feels much more like a labor of love than the abortion tokyopop put out.

all the original music has been put back in too.
